While activists march on Sacramento with demands to “Stop Fracking with California,” and historic chemical legislation comes to the United States Senate floor, EnviroReporter.com‘s Michael Collins takes on Fracking Chemical Cocktail and Trichloroethylene in The Toxies Tapes. More brawl than interview, TCE clobbers Collins who defiantly jousts with the volatile organic compound. The reporter then truly meets his match in “Frackie” where the chemistry sparks and the subject turns to drilling and fracking.

Fight intensifies over KB Home development in Runkle Canyon, where heavy metal and radioactive contamination were found.
An unforgettable, and inextinguishable, fire will break out if Fukushima’s Reactor 4 building collapses taking its spent fuel pond with it. The uncontrollable blaze would lead to full meltdowns on Fukushima’s other three reactors in addition to the trio already destroyed, as well as alighting the common spent fuel pond with over 6,000 incredibly radioactive spent rods. The disaster, ignored by the American and Canadian governments as Japan blunders along, would make Tokyo uninhabitable and ruin Japan and lands beyond possibly including our own.
As fallout from FukushiFma heads our way, the government turns a blind eye

For the first time in seven years of residents battling KB Home’s massive Runkle Canyon development in the shadow of the old Rocketdyne lab over pollution problems in the canyon, company representatives and the community face off at a Simi Valley Planning Commission meeting over a five-year option to build permit extension. The fur flies as the developer’s representative and his attorney, perhaps flustered by the vocal opposition to the project, proceed to embark on an odyssey of ‘factual inaccuracies’ about the controversial building scheme.
KB Home goes for a five year extension on a construction permit to build 461 residences in Runkle Canyon. Problem is that new contamination has been found on the site and evidence that the developer has blocked government requests for Clean Water Act data.
EnviroReporter.com journeys back to the same Japanese store in Los Angeles to purchase the same brand and make of Nori seaweed it had bought last August. The green sheets of seaweed, prized for its nutty, crispy flavor by hipsters and locals alike, comes in at double background radiation, with a substantial part of that ionization coming from alpha radiation which is 60 to 1,000 times more dangerous than beta and gamma radiation because of its lethality if ingested or inhaled. The eight-month old Nori seaweed bought last year still radiates far above background but loses some of its punch strongly suggesting the presence of medium and long-lived radionuclides like cesium-137 and the lethal brew captured in uranium-60 “buckyballs.” Worse still is the fact that the gelling substances in seaweed, 90% of which is grown in the Far East, are used in toothpaste, milk shakes, beer, desserts and all manner of food and drink products that are made with alginate and carrageenan. Hot seaweed sold in 49 Japanese and Japanese-American stores in Southern California as well as over 900 stores.
An imperfect storm swept into Southern California on, perhaps appropriately enough, April Fools weekend creating the conditions that tested EnviroReporter.com‘s scientific hypothesis that radioactive “buckyballs” and other fission radionuclides from the triple Fukushima Japan meltdowns are already impacting the region. Sure enough, a rain composed primarily of sea mist formed over a choppy ocean with high winds tested higher than any other Los Angeles Basin rain since Radiation Station Santa Monica began fallout radiation tests March 15, 2011, four days after the unabated meltdowns began. The rain, not impacted by so-called “natural” radon progeny, came in at a whopping 506% above normal, more than high enough to qualify as a hazardous material situation for the California Highway Patrol. This is the hottest L.A. rain detected with our Inspector Alert nuclear radiation monitor in the over 1,500 radiation tests we’ve taken since last year’s Ides of March.
Sunny Southern California has been the bulls eye for Fukushima meltdowns fallout and radiation contamination with more Cesium-137 impacting L.A. more than anywhere else in the U.S. after the disaster began March 11, 2011. Now with levels of radiation hammering the West Coast with levels that dwarf Chernobyl’s 1986 meltdown, the danger of Uranium-filled “buckyballs” threatens to irradiate the West Coast turning the seashore a silent unseen cesspool of radioactive goo. This abridged and updated version of Beta Watch, with new data, information and interviews was so shocking that even EnviroReporter‘s favorite print editors were dumbstruck by The Endless Bummer. An EnviroReporter.com exclusive.

An LA Weekly investigation finds the cancer-causing chemicals trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethylene (PCE) being used as the base of pepper sprays sold in California with no Prop. 65 warnings. Sprays with these carcinogens are being sold all over the country. True Value and Do It Best hardware stores sell PCE-based pepper sprays at the Southern California stores LA Weekly investigated.
An 11-month EnviroReporter.com investigation with over 1,500 Fukushima fallout tests, a new UC Davis report about uranium-filled “buckeyballs” and proof that sea mist carries radiation inland for hundreds of miles all add up to one thing: it’s going to be a long hot Endless Bummer at the beach this year. Bay Watch has just turned into Beta Watch.

Fukushima fallout in the American Heartland also served up other radiological surprises, some of which were unexpectedly positive.

On a mournful night of thunder and lightning outside of Zion on the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001 yields radioactive rain 204% times normal. The sixth month anniversary of the triple meltdown and spent fuel tanks destruction finds fallout in a freak week of storms south of the Jet Stream which usually is the conduit for the radiation. This alarming spread of radiation throughout the Northern Hemisphere is even more frightening with apparent alpha radiation in the samples EnviroReporter.com collected. Alpha radiation is 60 to 1,000 times more dangerous than either beta or gamma radiation.
